just broke news of a statement to troops by Marine Gen. Joe Dunford, chairman of the joint
chiefs, that there would be "no modifications" to the military transgender policy enacted last year, despite
our duly elected commander-in-chief's bout of thumb-diarrhea yesterday. Apparently Trump forgot to
tell...anyone...about his plan (which came on the 69th anniversary of Truman's racial integration of the
armed forces, as a fun sidenote), and so it means nothing until he specifically directs the defense
department to take action. Let's hope that before he can do that he spots a shiny object and forgets about
the whole thing. Below is an artist's rendering of Dunford immediately following Trump's tweets.
